  11. The size of your portfolio when you made your first sale

    I certainly do not know why I persevered but at the time I was learning the art of digital photography and found Alamy to be a very good teacher, along with lots of very obliging contributors at that time giving advice too through the forums. As far as income, well, it leaves a lot to be desired but a lot of that is down to me and the type of images I produce and the keywording I apply to my images. Yes it is a hobby and gives me an interest, among other things, in my retirement even if it does not supplement my pension income. I have also been lucky in meeting some very nice people through the Cambridge contributor group meetings who have become good friends. Yes I think it has been worth it and pleased I persevered after all. Allan
